The Greenwood Theatre Garden

Garden designer/TV presenter Joe Swift has created a linear ‘pocket park’ at the Greenwood Theatre, London Bridge, with the help of British fashion designer Zandra Rhodes.

Built in the 70’s, the theatre is located around the corner from The Shard, Borough Market and Bermondsey Street.

We were asked to help with structural elements of this project including steel girder arches, planters on the roof parapet wall and a porch. The transformation of this urban theatre from grey and mundane to vibrant and alive is part of the Team London Bridge and The Mayor’s Pocket Parks Programme shared vision, which aimed to deliver 100 new or enhanced pocket parks across London by March 2015.

The Greenwood Theatre Garden was awarded the People’s Choice Award, 2015, Society of Garden Designers.
